About Björn Billing

Keywords: aesthetics, modernity, environmental history, ecocriticism, landscapes, anthropocene, extinction, dinosaurs

I wrote my thesis (2000) on the German philosopher and composer Theodor W. Adorno and his ideas about the historical development of modern art. In my postdoctoral research project (2001-2004) I studied intersections between philosophy, architecture and music in Vienna around 1900.

Since the last couple of years my interest has gravitated towards ideas about nature and the environment. I have developed courses in environmental history and ecocriticism and have been active in several collaboration projects on sustainability, the environment and climate in visual culture, and the anthropocene. In December 2017 my monograph about Jean-Jacques Rousseau and 18th century ideas about mountains, wilderness and travel was published. Another research interest of mine is dinosaurs and the history of paleontology.
